Division 1 Track and Field Scholarship Standards - USA Athletics Scholarships

Division 1 Track and Field Scholarship Standards

There is no such thing as a set track scholarship standard. Coaches uses these times merely as guidelines. Instead, the standards will be used alongside the following criteria:

  • Times and PBs – How quick you have ran, or how far you have thrown or jumped
  • Your racing ability and championship form – Do you win a lot of races?
  • Training age – Are you new to the sport?
  • Progression – Have you been improving quickly?
  • Attitude – Have you got what it takes to be part of their team?
  • Academics – Can a coach offer your academic aid instead? Can you keep up with the academic pace?

As a guideline, we feel we can acquire athletics scholarships for athletes of the following standards. We may use academic aid alongside this so the better your grades are, the easier it will be for us.

THESE ARE ONLY GUIDELINES. We have secured athletes with slower times before so please still apply.
